Dark red with a pink head - very pretty. Aroma of leather and cherries. Respectable amount of funk, but not assertively so. Ditto the acidity, which is ably balanced with sweet cherry notes and a dryish, nutty character.

Bottle. [thank you, dedollewaitor]
[at dedollewaitor’s Odense tasting]
Wow! Pours deep red with an impressive frothy, pink head. Fine duration. Aroma is stunning ripe cherries, light, balanced woodiness and caramel with a vanilla touch. Super velvety soft mouthfeel. Pleasantly dry. Flavour is tart, but somewhat balanced. Great cherry tones with great dryness. Sublime balance. Wow! (again)

2005 bottle April 2008, thanks to Dedollewaitor. Misplaced the notes for a good year...
Deep red with a pink head. Sour fresh cherry aroma with almond, vanilla and wood. Flavour is sweetish cherry, with lots of wood, and a wonderful tart cherry aftertaste. Delicious!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (01 march/ 2005) from Marcus. Very much appreciated. Pours a very dark reddish tinged brown with an emphemeral pinkish tan head. Aroma of sour cherry and brett. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is sour, brettish, and puckering cherry. Finish is smooth, sour and a bit earthy. Not like sucking cherry pits. More like sucking sour cherry skins. Takes a long time for wood and oak to be noticeable, but it does happen. They don’t make many like this. It just gets better with time.
